The HiFloFiltro was almost $20 less expensive than a Honda OEM. The filtering media appear to be of a good quality and same density as the OEM. The fit was perfect. The outside screen is not as fine as the OEM, so larger particals will get to through to the filtering media. But this also allows greater air flow as it gets dirty. I live in a windy dust place so this may shorten the life of the filter. For the price I could afford to replace it sooner than the 12,000 recommended for my bike. I did notice an increase in throttle response at lower speed over my dirty OEM filter. A good value for the money.
